The Power of Believing

“The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.” 

~Frank Lloyd Wright  

I was watching The Talk earlier today and they were going around their table asking if anyone believed in psychics.  There was one woman that said she didn’t, two women who were proud to say that they do, and the other two women who said that they believed in psychics but that they would never give into that belief by actually going to see one.  I sat there watching as a person who does believe in them.  I will even admit that I actually got a reading from one a long time ago and it was pretty accurate (for the most part).  I got to thinking why it is that some people don’t believe, some people believe whole heartedly, and some believe but don’t want to give into their belief.  

The power of what you believe in can carry you through many things in life.  Just as well, the power of you not believing can carry a lot of weight too.  When it comes to your life, your goals, and your dreams, you have to believe.  No one else can believe in your dreams for you.  The question is how strong is your belief in you?  I think that people (like me) who believe in psychics, believe because they want to have a road map of how things are going to turn out.  They want to know if what they want out of life is going to become a reality.  They want someone, in this case a psychic, to give them something to believe in, some kind of assurance.  They want that psychic to give them a reason to believe.  But a psychic can’t really do the believing for you.  That’s all up to you.  

You know they say that all you need to do to make your dreams come true is to believe that they can.  No one has a magic crystal ball where they can look and tell you whether or not what you believe in will come to fruition.  There’s no way of knowing whether or not all of your hard work will pay off.  But there is power in believing.  We have to remember that no matter how hard the obstacles may seem to get or how impossible they might seem to overcome, nothing is more powerful then the belief that we have in ourselves and in our dreams.  Until tomorrow…How powerful is your belief in your dreams?
